RICHLAND CENTER, Wis. — A Richland Center woman accused of killing a man in 2019 was found guilty Wednesday, online court records show.

Amber Lundgren, 38, was found guilty of first-degree intentional homicide and carrying a concealed weapon. Sauk County Sheriff’s officials said Lundgren shot Christopher Lytle, 37, in the head in September 2019.

Lytle’s body was found in an isolated area in Fairfield off Levee Road a day after the shooting. An autopsy confirmed that Lytle was shot twice in the area between his head and neck.

Lundgren reportedly told police she and Lytle had dated, but she hadn’t spoken to him in 13 years. Officials said she didn’t warn Lytle before shooting him and didn’t check to see if he was still breathing afterward.

Last year, Lundgren was arrested after she allegedly violated the terms of her bail. Officials said she failed to show up for a mandatory daily appearance at the Richland County Sheriff’s Office. She was charged with felony bail jumping. Online court records show that during an arraignment on January 31, 2022, Lundgren stood mute, and a Not Guilty plea was entered for the charge.
